When I was in San Diego earlier this month, us girls walked around Coronado. We do this almost every time we visit, enjoying the beautiful and exotic gardens and expensive homes, pretending to buy this house or that one. Here are some of the more artsy photos I took on this visit.

They almost look like a V of birds, trying to fly away.

Orchid? What is this gorgeous flower? And the neighboring foliage is pretty as well.

Fronds or are they feathers atop a tropical hat?

Bouginevillea? Beaucoup blossoms!

You can't really see it unless you click to open the photo, but there's a little cafe table and chairs up on that middle archway. Wouldn't that be a great place to sit in the evening with your glass of wine and a good book or friend?

I love San Diego! Looks like you had a lovely time! Oh, and that flower is a hibiscus - just in case you were still wondering. Being a So. Cal girl, I've learned a lot about the tropical stuff, from my childhood.

Definately a hibiscus - one of Tom's favorite flowers. The tree that was in my living room is actually 3 of them braided to make a multi-colored tree. So far no buds, but we are waiting rather impatiently for them to come.
